With KICK-ASS building huge buzz for its release today (actually starting last night in many theaters), comic-book properties are hotter than ever in Hollywood. The latest adaptation news involves Garth Ennis’ CROSSED.
Variety reports that Ken F. Levin, Michael De Luca, Kickstart Comic Art Studios’ Jason Netter and Dana Brunetti of Kevin Spacey’s Trigger Street Productions are teaming up on a film version of CROSSED, an Avatar Press title illustrated by Jacen Burrows. The story is set after a plague has swept the Earth that causes people to act upon their most violent impulses, and follows a group of survivors making their way through the madness; Avatar just shipped hardcover and paperback collections of CROSSED this week. The plan is to finance and produce the movie independently and then shop it to distributors, a plan that paid off well for KICK-ASS after studios rejected the material. Ennis himself has written a script, and it’s currently out to directors.
